Deal Details

Probably not a deal but 9to5Mac just reported that AT&T will start unlocking iPhone in good standing. Here is the statement on 9to5Mac [9to5mac.com]

“Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will offer qualifying customers the ability to unlock their AT&T iPhones. The only requirements are that a customer’s account must be in good standing, their device cannot be associated with a current and active term commitment on an AT&T customer account, and they need to have fulfilled their contract term, upgraded under one of our upgrade policies or paid an early termination fee.”

Apparently it's due to the many complaints that Tim Cook's office received from AT&T customers. I would like to think that the SD community has a lot to do with that.

Try looking for the sim unlocks on eBay. There is a sum tray that has a chip between your sum and the iPhone that unlocks your iPhone. Take a look. Gevey is one of the brands but it is pretty expensive. Hope it helps.
i wouldnt mind paying $50 for it, except im on 04.11.08 Firmware, which isnt unlockable. Though something i heard is coming out for it... i hope it comes out before i head overseas...

No, you READ my post again.

iPhone 4S has BOTH GSM and CDMA. All iPhone 4S has both.

You might be thinking of iPhone 4 which has either GSM or CDMA, but not both.

No one really has the answer to that yet. Ask again tomorrow once everyone starts calling in LOL.

My guess is no though.

Now, two days later everyone is reporting that it's official and suddenly it's all happy kisses?

Hope everyone from the original thread is willing to eat crow and admit they were wrong. Wink

CDMA capable iPhone 4S are both cdma and quad band gsm.

GSM iPhone 4S are quad band gsm, but do not have cdma.

Meaning a verizon or Sprint iPhone 4S has cdma and gsm.

A att iPhone 4S has only gsm.

Just called. Rep confirmed that my phone was out of contract and there were no outstanding dues. Also asked for my IMEI number. Transferred me to tech support. Tech support sent me an e mail with a pdf attachment which contains the following instructions

To complete the unlock, simply:
1. Open iTunes on your Mac or PC and verify that you have internet connectivity.
2. Connect your iPhone using the dock connector to USB cable that came with your iPhone.
3. Backup and restore your iPhone using iTunes .
For information on backup and restore, please visit http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414.
4. After restoring, your iPhone will be unlocked.

So apparently you only have to restore your phone and itunes realizes that Apple has removed lock from your phone. There are no codes etc to enter like with other phones.
This is my personal 3G phone which I got from AT&T and was under contract for 2 years.
Rep told me you can unlock only 5 phones in 12 months. I had unlocked 2 AT&T go phones from a earlier slickdeal.

Happy unlocking to all.

This was your personal phone right? You had it since beginning of the 2 year contract?

I'll have to call and ask them to see if I can unlock the ones I got from my friends and ones from craigslist. They aren't tied to any account but I doubt they are over 1.5 or more years old.

It doesn't matter, you're gonna have to restore it anyway according to post above you.

Haven't done it yet. Will do in the morning. I already switched to Android Galaxy S II skyrocket and really don't care much about about the iPhone anymore.

Yes i had it since the beginning of contract.
